Given the continuing travel disruptions caused by COVID-19, Qantas is further extending most Qantas Club memberships and complimentary lounge invitation expiry dates by six months, after already doing so once back in March.

Paid Qantas Club memberships active as at 23 September 2020 will automatically receive a six-month extension. This will be awarded to members who purchased their Individual, Corporate, Partner, or Group membership or an Annual Guest Card, using a credit or debit card, or Qantas Points. The extension won’t be provided to complimentary Qantas Club memberships (such as those that come with Gold status).

Affected customers don’t need to register for this offer – it will be applied automatically by the end of this month.

Qantas is also extending the validity of complimentary lounge invitations for a further six months. This excludes members who joined Points Club – your newly acquired lounge invitations have been issued with a 12-month validity, expiring in 2021, so the extension will not apply to these invitations.

For members who received a lounge invitation upon attaining or retaining Silver Tier status, you have received one additional lounge invitation along with your 12-month Tier Status Extension so the further six-month extension will not apply to your original invitation.

You can view the expiry dates of your invitations via the Complimentary Lounge Invitations portal.

More information about these changes is available on Qantas’ website here.

Qantas has been slowly reopening lounges, with Covid-safe measures in place, since July, however many remain closed. The latest information about openings is available here.
